Committed tutor and examiner with knowledge and expertise in Physical and Human Geography

Methodology

I have taken on numerous teaching responsibilities at Aberystwyth University, as a tutor and lecturer of both Human and Physical Geography. Modules have included `Geohazards`, `Volcanic Activity`, and `Global Security`. The students enrolled on my modules have exceeded their academic expectations, with consistently high grades and the acquisition of transferable skills.

Furthermore, I have taught college students on the Aberystwyth Summer University. The scheme is part of the `Widening Participation in Higher Education` initiative, and has allowed me to successfully prepare students for university.

I have also been an assistant lecturer, prepared module materials, and introduced students to field training and research methods. My teaching style is interactive, encouraging discussion, and critically providing overviews of case studies and subject knowledge.

Experience

Committed to teaching Geography (Human and Physical) at numerous levels of academic development, and examiner for both GCSE and A-Level. Having been awarded a Ph.D. (2017), and successfully completing both an M.A. (2012) and BSc (2011), I have the skill and experience to teach/tutor across the discipline. Furthermore, I am also capable of teaching research methods and providing support for exam preparation/revision.

My specialist area is hazard and risk management (seismic, urban and climatic hazards), but I also teach social, regional and cultural geography, as well as Physical Geography. My academic commitments and responsibilities have enabled me to gain experience of teaching both large and small class sizes. My lessons critically provide an overview of case studies, encourage interactive discussion, incorporate transferable skills, and identify synoptic links between geographical topics.

I mark assessments and homework free of charge. As an examiner, I fully understand mark schemes and expectations.
